High Tech Conditioning Treatments
With the summer on it’s way…. Between the sun, sea and sand, our hair in the summer gets a pretty rough deal. For those beachy natural waves, you need to start treating those locks to hair masks and treatment, to get it into tip top condition. A nourishing mask once a week at home to keep your hair in a good condition.
More and more salons offer high-tech conditioning treatments, like removing split-ends with the Split-ender Pro Machine, which only remove the split-ends along the hair shaft and ends and Olaplex, which is the hair colour saving miracle that will keep your hair silky and soft, even under the ravages of hair dye. So with your next salon appointment, ask your hairdresser for advice.
…and while you there….get a good healthy trim.
TIP when on holiday: Start washing your hair under cold water before you take a dip in the pool. Your hair can only absorb so much water….so by washing it with fresh water first, you’re limiting the amount of damaging chlorine it can absorb. Apply a moisturizing mask that protects against chlorinated and salt water.
What is a balayage?
It is the French word, meaning ”to paint”. It’s a highlighting technique and it allows a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour.
The Balayage pieces should be very close and soft at the root leading to a thicker highlight at the ends of the hair. Balayage should be applied on the surface of a section and not saturated through the section until the very tips, otherwise you would have a streak of colour that isn’t very soft at all. Because it is hand pinted, the colourist can do the placement that best complement your haircut, skin and features so its look really natural rather than actually extremely coloured. Ombre means to shadow, and it’s a seamless graduation from dark to lighter. Both the Balayage and Ombre technique, can be merged. Sombre is a much softer version of Ombre and is still popular.
